The total value of this box is £57. There’s also an exclusive beauty box offer of 25% off the brands featured in the box.
What’s in the box
Ayumi Naturals Neem & Tea Tree Body Wash (250ml | £6.99)
An invigorating and refreshing Neem and tea tree wash. A unique blend of bearberry, mulberry, nettle and moringa leaves the skin with sensuous temptation and tone. A blend of Ayurvedic neem, nimba and tea tree oil envelop the skin with a healthy protective veil, while a tinge of cooling menthol leaves skin feeling fresh, healthy and bursting with freshness.

I’m not much of a morning person and need a little pick-me-up to get me started. I’m all for an invigorating body wash to wake up my body and senses. This is a lovely body wash that lathers well and gently cleans the skin without drying it out.
I love the fresh invigorating scent and the tingly cooling sensation on the skin while using it.

I’m a super fan of Nature’s Kitchen so of course I was excited to try out their new face polish. First of all it has a delicious fruity scent.
The consistency is nice and creamy and it isn’t overly abrasive. I use it 2/3 times a week in place of my usual cleanser. I apply to wet skin, massage gently for a minute and then rinse well.
It leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and smooth.
MÁDARA Hyaluronic Collagen Booster Ampoules (10 x 3ml | £29.90)
Sharpen up your skin care routine with these moisturising and collagen-boosting ampoules, supercharged with natural hyaluronic acid and water-binding plant sugars.
Instantly improves the condition and look of dry, dehydrated, tense, irritated and thinning skin. Targets fine lines and signs of ageing. Helps to restore plumpness by stimulating the skin’s structural proteins. Rehydrates the deepest layers of the skin and forms a moisturising hydro film strengthening the skin’s protective barrier.
Aqua (Water),Glycerin, Isoamyl Laurate, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Sodium Levulinate, Lysolecithin, Sclerotium Gum (Amigel) Xylitol, Aroma, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Anisate, Cellulose, Pullulan, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate (Vitamin C), Tocopherol, Ci 77491 (Iron Oxide)
For the best results, use as a course of treatment for 10 days, then 2–3 times a week to support the effects. Break open the top of the ampoule. Apply to clean face and neck. Use within 24 hours.
I was excited to try these treatment ampoules. It is easy to break open the ampoule, pour into the palm of your hand and smooth over the face and neck. The consistency is rich and creamy and it sinks in easily into the skin.
It gives my skin an intense hydration boost. I follow up with a thin layer of moisturiser. Over the course of the treatment, my skin looks smoother, plumper and firmer to the touch. My skin also appears to retain more moisture and hydration.
The only downside of this treatment is how much product was left over even after using a generous amount evening and morning. I think a 2ml ampoule would be more appropriate.
John Masters Organics Lip Calm (4g | £7)
The best thing that’s ever happened to your lips. Soothing, moisturising and invigorating all in one delicious and aromatic treatment.
Made of the finest in organic ingredients, Lip Calm not only protects your lips from weather, it rejuvenates your spirit.

This is one my favourite lip balms. It applies very smoothly and has a lovely invigorating scent… sweet vanilla and lime.
It is super nourishing and moisturising, my lips are soft and smooth afterwards. No chapped lips here!

I’ve had my eye on INIKA’s newly launched skincare range. The consistency of the eye cream is light and creamy. It feels lovely and silky and glides on smoothly as I pat around my eye area. It helps to soothe and refresh my eye area.
I’ve enjoyed using the sample and look forward to trying out the rest of their skincare.
Another great box this month. Thanks again LoveLula! I look forward to next month’s goodies.
